I performed a simple home test, a comparison of startup and shutdown times of:
- Live-CD Fedora 16 beta - systemd parallel boot, GNOME 3
- Live-CD Knoppix 6.7.1 - microknoppix-fast-parallel-boot (based on SysV/LSB
note that Knoppix does decompression while executing
The times measured were:
t1 - time between machine turned ON and showing of live system DE menu
t2 - time between machine "Shutdown" from DE menu and actual machine shutdown
Note: no custom configuration or other user activities were performed.
Lenovo TP R61i, Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo 1.86 GHZ, Intel Mobile 965GM,
2 GB RAM, HD, CD-RW, sound, internal ethernet and wireless.
HP Nx6110, Intel Celeron M 1.3 GHZ, Intel Mobile 915GM, 768 MB RAM, HD, CD-RW,
sound, internal ethernet.
Knoppix won by a wide margin, while:
- Knoppix having microknoppix fast-parallel boot (based on SysV/LSB scripts)
and DE with low resources usage and tailored for desktops
- Fedora having systemd parallel boot and DE tailored for small and simple
